14. He offers with, “May Agni, with his flame, hear my prayer;” whereby he means to say, “May he hear this prayer of mine, may he vouchsafe it to me;”—“May the waters and the Soma-bowls hear, the divine!” whereby he means to say, “May the waters hear this (prayer) of mine, may they vouchsafe it to me.”—“Hear me, ye stones, as knowing the sacrifice!” whereby he means to say, “May the (pressing) stones hear this (prayer) of mine, may they vouchsafe it to me;” and 'as knowing the sacrifice,' he says, because the stones are indeed knowing. “May the divine Savitri hear my prayer, Hail!” whereby he means to say, “May the divine Savitri hear this (prayer) of mine, may he vouchsafe it to me;” for Savitri is the impeller of the gods; impelled by him he goes for that sap of the sacrifice.
